Can a player try out to "play up" on an older team? In general, players should play "at age". Coaches will evaluate each player and when team sizes are conducive to playing up, i.e., there are too many players at the younger age and not enough players at the older age, offers will be made to those players that will be successful playing up. Playing up in a previous year does not automatically mean that a player will play up in subsequent years. Players that have played up in previous years should contact the Team Representative for their team prior to tryouts to discuss the appropriate team for tryouts.
I have a 4th grader that would like to play. Should she try out for the 5th grade team? We will not be fielding a 4th grade team this year. 4th grade players interested in playing may try out for the 5th grade team and will be evaluated without regard to age.
What if a player has a conflict on the tryout date? If a player cannot attend a tryout, it is important that the player’s parent contact the Team Representative, prior to the tryouts. If a player in unavailable on the tryout day (due to injury or other circumstance), we will do our best to arrange a tryout at a future practice but may not be able to offer your child a spot on a team.
Are parents allowed to watch the tryouts? Parents are not allowed to view the tryouts. There will be a non-coach observer at each tryout to assist in team selection and a Board representative will also be present. Questions about team selection should be addressed to the coach or the Board President.
What should the player bring to tryouts? Comfortable clothing, basketball or tennis shoes that will not damage a gym floor and a water bottle. A basketball is recommended but not required.
When are girls notified of the tryout results? Each player/parent will be contacted by the coach with the tryout results after team selection is made and no more than 48 hours after the tryout.
